This Mother's Day, like many others around Australia, Talent Web will be celebrating the mums in our lives! For many of us, Mum is the reason we are who we are today, they’ve been there since day one! They've taught us more life lessons than anyone else and they are ALWAYS there when we need them.
Celebrations of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honor of the mother goddesses, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” Did you know that more phone calls are made on Mother’s Day than any other day of the year? These holiday chats with Mum often cause phone traffic to spike by as much as 37%!
So in celebration of these wonderful women, here are a few of the Mums of Talent Web. Whether they're mums of employees, or mothers working in the business.... There are even a few notes from the kids!
“Mum is my absolute rock and for the past twelve years, she has stepped into the role of being both Mum and Dad to me. Even though we live miles apart she is always secured in my heart" Rob King
“One of the biggest life-changing moments in my life was becoming a mum, it is a challenging job but nothing gives me more happiness than to hear the sound of giggles and laughter and the warmth of a hug at the end of a hard day. " Melissa Meacham
“Mum is amazing because she loves us so much even when she is angry. And when we are lucky
we get lollies." Beatrice Crossley, 6
"Mum is amazing because she gives me cuddles." Gilbert Crossley, 3
"Slightly biased but my mam is THE best Mam in the world!! Living so far apart has it’s difficulties, but the virtual world we live in means she is only ever a FaceTime away." Elly Blackburn
“Mum and I always have our 'cheeky face' we do every time we see each other. I love her more than anything in this world. She's literally a super mom that can do almost anything and she's made me into the man I've grown up to be today." Nima Beik
“The best part about lockdown is being able to spend quality time with my Mum
doing the things we love.." Amy Benton
"Sometimes it is hard to comprehend that your heart can hold so much love ... It seems like such a cliche, but it is true, my four children are my greatest achievement. I have thought about this often in these last few weeks and I think a sentiment that I keep coming back to is contentment... if I can be by the sea with my children beside me, I would want for nothing else!" Nina Kehoe

Happy Mothers Day, from everyone at Talent Web!
